A citizen of Kazakhstan, transwoman Alice Femina, who has been living in Moscow for more than 15 years, ended up in the Sakharov detention center, where she spent 15 days, for shouting the slogan “Glory to Ukraine”. This is written by Mediazona, with whom the girl spoke.
At the end of May, Alice celebrated her birthday in one of the Moscow clubs, a deposit was paid in advance, a table was ordered. According to her, from time to time she went out to see off friends who were leaving home, sometimes she went out with everyone to smoke. After another such time, the guard refused to let her back in, called her "a man in a skirt", pushed her away and was rude.
Alice asked her friend to bring her bag, which contained her passport, and shouted “Glory to Ukraine” in her emotions.
“Of course, that’s all for me… I got nervous. Moreover, this has already happened in clubs in Moscow. I won’t say that I often go somewhere, but there were such stories. In general, my girlfriend says to me: "Forget it, okay, let's leave." And I: “Yes, fuck you all!”. Well, I started shouting “Glory to Ukraine!”. These were my feelings, I expressed them this way. There were a lot of people standing there, about 50 people. Someone wanted to attack me, then the guard also wanted to attack - I started kicking, then the guards pressed me against the wall and called the police.
In the car, Alice was handcuffed, and she and her friend were taken to the Tverskoy police department in Moscow. The friend was soon released without a protocol, Alice was not released, and the next day bullying began.
“The attitude towards me there, of course, was ... terrible. I was constantly transphobic, insulted, they constantly called me “trance”, incomprehensible pronouns, in the middle gender. The next day they took me to an alcoholic medical examination - everything was zero there. But all these policemen were standing there, laughing, saying “he” about me. I told them, "Please address me as a woman." And they: "Ha ha, transuka."
And on Monday morning, a policeman comes to me. Says: "Call your old name, surname." I say that I will not name anything. Here is my passport - this is my real name and surname. He left. In about five or ten minutes the door opens and I am led out into the hall. I don't know what they call it - a receiver, well, a common room. There are policemen. One is sitting in the duty room, looking at me from the window. I'm standing at the door, two men to my left. And there is a table, a woman sits behind it, very tough. She’s like let’s immediately yell at me: “Che bitch, tell me who you are?”. Let's call the past your name! We see who you are!” I say: “Here is my name [on the passport], I won’t say anything else.”
After such an answer, the policewoman, with the words “we will see who you are - a man or a woman,” demanded that Alice undress in front of everyone, refusing to conduct an inspection in private. Under pressure, the girl soon agreed. She was examined in front of all the men present, forced to spin. One of the police officers said: "Write down: no male sexual characteristics found." The police officer continued to insult the girl and demand to give her dead name (name before the change of data in the documents) and eventually forced her to voice this information.
“She continues to yell - come on, she says, give your name. I say, "I won't." And she: “So, in short, right now, for your slogans, you will go to the Lubyanka to the FSB, they will quickly split you there. They will put you in a freight train and go to Ukraine, to the front. Will you serve our men then, WOMAN.
As a result, Alice's phone was taken away, she was forced to give her password, her correspondence, including intimate ones, was read, and they were looking for evidence of Ukraine's support. The Center E staff member asked about Alice's surgery and whether she slept with men. In the report, the police wrote that during the arrest she kicked and scratched, ran away from the police shouting “Glory to Ukraine.” Alice claims that it was not so, but the judge refused to call witnesses, saying that she had no reason not to trust the police.
Alice was sentenced to 15 days of arrest for disobedience and a fine of 50,000 rubles for "discrediting" the army. In response to the appeal, the Moscow City Court left the decision of the Tverskoy Court unchanged.
After leaving the special detention center, she received a dismissal notice from her boss and discovered that many media wrote about her case, often in a negative way. Mash was the first to spread information about her - a couple of hours after the interrogation with stripping in the Tver police department, the Telegram channel published all her data - including the deadname.
